Photograph – Free Verse


Chipped paint exterior
All original
No touch ups
Hipster chic –
Cool to be dented,
Damaged, demented
Vintage Broken
Spoken of but never
Cemented in time
By a faded filtered photograph.

Nothing’s as real a step removed
Pain developed by someone else
Is never as tangible.

Jessie Gutierrez
